It’s December, it’s cold and there’s even snow in some parts of the country – Christmas is definitely almost upon us. And while ’tis the season to be jolly, let’s not forget those who are less fortunate than us.
Just for the pre-Christmas season, 9th to 16th of December to be exact, some of the UK’s top chefs and bakers have donated their time to The Mince Pie Project in order to raise money for Action Against Hunger and the Jamie Oliver Foundation. That’s everyone from the Michelin-starred Raymond Blanc, Michel Roux Jr and Marcus Wareing to the super bakers Eric Lanlard and Edd Kimber, just to name a few.
Each chef will be baking a batch of 50 mince pies, with their own unique spin on the classic, to be sold through an online auction. You can bid for the mince pies on themincepieproject.com from 9am on the 9th, with the auction closing at 6pm on the 16th. The winning bidder will then receive their freshly baked mince pies, made on the day, via courier on the 22nd of December, just in time for Christmas.
Lend your support at themincepieproject.com from 9th December.
